General note In the days before colour photography, illustrations of lesions were produced the hard way. This two hundred and fifty page hardback book, elegantly presents some truly gruesome images, but which offer some important representations of diseases, many – but not all – of which are now thankfully curable or treatable. Amongst the chapters which cover skin diseases, leprosy, tuberculosis, cholera, cancer, heart disease, venereal diseases, parasites and gout, there are depictions of cancerous tongues, syphilitic teeth (tertiary symptom of syphilis) and a watercolour portrait of the teeth of a gouty patient.
Subject - Topical term DENTISTRY IN ART
